Kite Delight, Simple to Stepped Up

For my Simple to Stepped Up project this week I’m using the Kite Delight stamp set and the new Cloud Punch.

For my Simple card I’ve just stamped onto Basic white cardstock with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink and then coloured with Stampin’ Blends.

For the second step I’ve added in some Pool Party clouds and then stamped the kites onto some of the Simply Marbleous Designer Paper, cut them out and adhered over the top of the clouds. I’ve also added a Pool Party matt behind the stamped to add some colour.

For my Stepped Up version I added in punched clouds from the Sunshine and Rainbows Designer Paper and used some black baker’s twine for the tail of the kite along with cut out bows.

Which is your favourite version? I like the middle version myself simple and stylish.

Happy Crafting

Pootler’s Team New Catalogue Blog Hop

Today the Pootler’s Team are hopping with projects from the new Janaury to June Mini Catalogue. This is a great catalogue and I love that there are so many new floral sets which are my favourite! So it was really hard to pick a favourite to share with you today but I’ve chosen the Daffodil Daydream set which features two gorgous floral images and some lovely decorative elements along with two senitments.

So here’s what I’m sharing today:

I’ve stamped the main Daffodil image and then die cut with the matching Daffodil Dies. I then coloured with a mix of Daffoidil Delight, Pale Papaya, Old Olive.

Here’s a closer look at the Balmy Blue version:

The background paper comes from the Simply Marbelous 6″ x 6″ Designer Paper which is a free product available during Sale-A-Bration.

The Flirty Flamingo version also uses the same paper:

I’ve used a Basic White matt cut from the Hippo and Friends Dies to mount my daffodils on and I’ve finished the card off with some Brushed Brass Butterflies which are gorgeous.
